I so love coconuts in any way shape and form! ❤️
This very tasty recipe I got from my friend , who is born on this fantastic island. And I will soon publish some more recipes from this amazing island.
Zanzibar chicken – Kuku wa kupaka
- 1 hole chicken cut into 8-10 pieces
- 1 chopped onion
- 3 medium peeled chopped tomatoes
- 3 crunch garlic cloves
- 1 crush chili
- 0,5 – 1 teaspoon chili pasta
- 0,5 teaspoon turmeric
- 1 tablespoon oil
- 1 big can coconut milk
- 1 lemon juice
- Coriander for garnish
Mix turmeric, garlic, chili pasta, lemon juice and salt for 2 – 3 hours or over night.
Fry the onion until light colour. Add the tomatoes and let it cook for 1 minute. Add the coconut milk and chopped chili. Stir for all the time to get a thick gravy on low heat. Keep aside.
Fry the chicken pieces for 15 minutes so they get a nice colour.
Add the chicken with the coconut sauce. Pour the sauce over the chicken. Add the lid and let it simmer for about 20 minutes. Serve with coconut rice.
